Santorum Criticizes Palestine, United Nations

Rick Santorum had harsh words in an interview this morning regarding the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations.

“We should defund the Palestinian authority,” Santorum said on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom program. “We should tell them there is no more money coming if you walk away from the bargaining table and you go over our head and you embarrass us in front of the United Nations.”

“Secondly,” he added, “there should be consequences to the United Nations. I for a long time have said that we should cut back our contribution to the United Nations. This is now a golden opportunity to point out to the American public exactly the fraud that the United Nations is quickly becoming.”
